In order to get to the essence of things just ask five why questions. So I put that into practice did just that with this question, “Why I write?”
1st why? I want to see my thoughts in paper.
2nd why? So that I can change my thoughts if they are wrong.
3rd why? Because I want to be right.
4th why? So I can live a good life.
5th why? I only live once and I don’t want to live a life of regret.
The essence of why I write is so that I don’t live a life of regret. In other words, I want to live a good life. I write to live a good life.
